Description: A transcription factor binding site with consensus sequence CCGCGNGGNGGCAG, bound by CCCTF-binding factor.

Synonyms: CTCF binding site, CCCTF binding site
Parents: promoter_element, insulator_binding_site, TF_binding_site

Note: I have added the more generic TF_binding_site here as the other two parents do not fully cover the potential binding of CTCF to promoter and splice site proximal regions (implicated in RNAPolII pausing) and distal enhancers.
